I love Forever 21 and although I’m long past 21 (I know total shocker 😆) I can still find things that work for me. Because of the low price point they need to have the garments made with less expensive fabric and mass produced – and sometimes it is obvious. In college, my best friend and I would have plans to go out and we’d stop at Forever 21 to get a top for the night. And because of said quality, sometimes the top would only last that one night. Eventually we got really good at finding great on-trend pieces that looked expensive but only we knew that we paid a fraction of the cost that other stores would be selling the same looking item for. Funny that both of us ended up working in the fashion industry, we’ve been strengthening our fashion eye for years!
Well fortunately Forever 21 has since improved their quality and you can find some great pieces that will last you far beyond one night. Enter the silver velvet jacket above: I always love a good flare piece and it is under $25 and looks just like other labels that cost over a hundred dollars more! Unfortunately velvet won’t always be in style (bummer!) so only paying $25 for something that may only last a couple seasons is always a good idea.
I have the jacket styled with a casual cotton body con dress however it would also look cute with a basic v-neck t-shirt underneath and skinny jeans. These sneakers are slim enough to wear with a dress yet sporty enough for jeans as well AND they are so so comfortable – if your feet are older than 21 years old you will thank me (good tie in huh 😀)
